We are in the process of identifying ways to meet the challenges posed by grant reductions and increasing cost and demand pressures on services.

One of the savings proposed for the 2017/18 Budget concerns Torbay's NHS Lifestyle Services which is funded by Public Health.

Your views were sought to inform the final proposals before a formal decision was made by the Council in February 2017. Information regarding all of Torbay Council's proposals can be seen at:

The current Torbay Lifestyle Services include:

  • Stop Smoking Service
  • Adult Weight Management Service
  • Children’s Weight Management Service
  • Services to address sedentary (inactive) behaviours in adults and children
  • Exercise for recovery from cardiac surgery
  • Screening for emotional health and wellbeing, dental health, and alcohol consumption

The responses have been collated and are available in the key findings report. This contains individual comments but these are anonymised.
